COVID-19: Right to work from home legislation may be introduced as part of return to work package

Government sources have revealed that legislation introducing an employee’s right to work from home may be brought in as part of the government’s return to work package. BIS is apparently considering potential legislation which would protect employees who feel it is unsafe for them to return to work and could also benefit employers who are struggling to make their workplaces safe in accordance with social distancing requirements.

The potential development aligns with the Prime Minister’s manifesto pledge to make flexible working the norm.
